How To Use 5-Foot-Wide Room for Guests?

Q: I live in a tiny 600 square foot apartment. I have a den, sized 9ft by 5ft, that I need to convert to a guest bedroom for my parents' visit. I was hoping to get an IKEA Brimnes daybed that converts to a 2 person bed. But considering that the room is only 5 feet wide I don't think I can fit that daybed in the room.

IKEA's daybed was the only economical option I was looking at and I am in a total fix now, considering that will not fit. Would appreciate any kind of suggestions to make the best of this room. Thanks, everyone!
